The new Huston Yards neighborhood, west of New York City, has been home to “The Shed” museum since April 5, 2019. The building is designed to be perfectly modular with a glass shell mounted on rails that can cover the space in front of the museum or retract. The construction of The Shed cost nearly 500 million dollars!
The Shed commissions original works of art, across all disciplines, for all audiences. The promoter of the site says, “We bring together established artists and young talent in fields ranging from hip-hop to classical music, painting to digital media, literature to theatre, sculpture to dance. The Shed houses two floors dedicated to exhibitions, on the 2nd and 4th floors. And, the 6th floor houses the Griffin Theater, a 500-seat theatre.
This museum is a warm, welcoming space for innovation and unique artistic experiences. By offering access and insight into the creative process, they forge deep bonds between artists and audiences.
Currently, there is an exhibition about Agnes Denes, rose to international attention in the 1960s and 1970s as a leading figure in conceptual, environmental, and ecological art. A pioneer of several art movements, she creates work in a broad range of mediums, utilizing various disciplines: science, philosophy, linguistics, ecology, psychology. Agnes Denes turns her analysis into beautiful, sensual visual forms, poetry, and a philosophy that she has developed over the course of her career. There will be more than 150 works for 50 years of careers.
